According to Mr. Taiwo Oluboyede, the CEO of the BrandNigeria event, to objectively arrive at the Top 50 Brands awardees, the organizers of the event had to “evaluate, rate and celebrate top corporate brands that have consistently maintained leadership positions in their categories.
The top brands this year are those that have been able to conceptualise consumer’s decision pattern and present well ‘justifiable’ propositions that meet these needs.
These brands have been consistent in their proposition and offering over the years and you can easily associate them as leaders in their categories.
They have strong and unique value proposition that properly articulates the consumer’s need and passionately work to meeting them. They represent more than their services and have become part of our definitive popular culture.”
The Group Head of Julius Berger’s Media Relations Office, Prince Moses Duku while receiving the highly coveted and prestigious award on behalf of the construction giant said, “We thankfully accept your award of ‘the Most Valuable Branding the Building and Construction Services Category’ as well as the ‘Highest Gainer YoY’ at the 2020 edition of #IAMBRANDNIGERIA’s Top Brands Nigeria to Julius Berger Nigeria PLC.
